Hi, and welcome. This is another scheduled post. Had a few minutes to write up a few posts from cards that had been done using things from the snippets bins. This is another one, but a little touch up was done on the copic shading, then hunted up a good S/Binder die to cut the image nicely.
-Stampendous wood block stamp (VOS)- The block says Star Lily. Used pink, pale oranges, and light yellow greens to color the petals, added some green spica coloring on the stamens and petal striations, also WoS.
- Cheery Lynn butterfly die cut from craft copper that had been heated (see Loll's heated copper video). The butterfly had lots of dimensional embossing until I ran it back through the Big Shot to ensure there were no sharp edges to present any danger. I encourage you to watch Loll's video, as it's a very pretty look (mine never turn out so well as Loll's, but I keep trying!!! )
- S/B Label die.
- background paper from a huge 12x12 pack (again, VOS). narrow strip of gold texture (a snippet) on the side trim, and then used Allison's Ribbons Die Plate to cut the hem stitched border on the right side (from another piece of paper in the same old 12x12 pack).
- PB sentiment cut from 3 layers, colored with copics.
That's all! Did 2 cards like this, but in different colors. Will share the 2nd one at a later time.
We're doing some porch sitting since the evenings are becoming more pleasant. The humidity is not so high, so even if the temps are not all that cool, it's refreshing to sit outside, watch the hummingbirds at the front feeders. They surely are feisty. Soon they'll be winging their way to South America, where I'm told they spend the winters.
I'm trying to get back into card making and posting. We're expecting some old navy buddies of DH to come in later this month, so trying to get things ready for that. Still in the Lazy Mode, sad to say. But it's been lovely to just chill. Big hugs, come again when you can. Ya'll have a grand afternoon.
